Kuriki Tatsusuke developed an interest in ceramic sculpture as a student at the Kyoto City University of Arts, where he earned a degree in 1966 and returned to teach in 1984. During the final decade of his life, one of his main pursuits was a silver-and-green series, in which he explored the use of wide interlacing bands of silver on round, slightly asymmetrical forms.
